This milling stone was excavated in 1986 during a highway salvage project at the Mem site, undertaken by Kansas Historical Society archeologists and Kansas Anthropological Association volunteers. The Mem site, in Marion County, is a Great Bend aspect, protohistoric Wichita village site. This groundstone tool was used as the lowermost stone for grinding plant material. Groundstone tools like this one are made by pecking a hard stone into a rough shape and then grinding and polishing it into its final state.

Date: 1500 CE-1800
